LOUISIANA SUPERPORT STUDIES. REPORT 1. PRELIMINARY RECOMMENDATIONS AND DATA ANALYSIS
The report recommends the sea area between Bayou LaFourche and the Southwest Pass of the Mississippi for establishment of a superport. This general location offers the economic advantages of close proximity to the Mississippi River and other inland waterways and water depths capable of handling ships with 90 foot drafts. A project in this area can become effective between 1976-78 with minimum environmental constraints and stresses. The legal, economic, environmental and engineering investigations that have led to these conclusions are presented in detail.
